Lyon, Montpellier & Auxerre blow their chance to close in on Bordeaux; PSG thump Sochaux; Nice & Boulogne enjoy happy away days

Lyon 1 – St Etienne 1 (Ligue 1, March 13, 2010) Les Verts stunned Lyon when Emmanuel Riviere headed the opener into the bottom corner on 38. The equaliser from the home side came from Argentine striker Lisandro Lopez with 11 minutes remaining.

Montpellier 1 -  Auxerre 1 (Ligue 1, March 13, 2010) Auxerre went ahead when Kenya striker Dennis Oliech squeezed through two defenders to score just before halftime. Argentine midfielder Alberto Costa brought the home side level from a counter-attack on 66 minutes.

PSG 4 – Sochaux 1 (Ligue 1, March 13, 2010) Guillaume Hoarau opened for the hosts after 17 minutes before Turkish striker Melvut Erding doubled their account a minute later, before claiming a second after 35 minutes. Ryad Boudebouz got one back for Sochaux after 63 minutes when he stepped up to take a penalty awarded for a foul by Jallet on midfielder Marvin. But Erding found the net again five minutes later to seal the rout.

Le Mans 0 – Nice 1 (Ligue 1, March 13, 2010) Le Mans slid closer to the trapdoor to Ligue 2 as Loic Remy gave Nice a vital win over their fellow strugglers at Leon-Bollee.

Nancy 1 – Boulogne 3 (Ligue 1, March 13, 2010) Boulogne boosted their survival hopes with just their second away win of the Ligue 1 season at Nancy. Boulogne had not won on their travels since August but were on course to end their barren run when Laurent Agouazi headed home at the far post after 32 minutes. Chris Malonga equalised nine minutes later but second-half goals from Matt Moussilou and Alexandre Cuvillier ensured a vital win for the visitors.
